Looks like a pretty tight fit to me... it looks like you cut your metal bumper too. I would just go with 35s again.

stick with the 35's they fit your truck very nice, and it would be a waste of $$ to get new rims for a tire that only gains you an inch.

i'm getting new rims reguardless, the one's on there now are way too wide = no bueno for the bearings. i'm pretty sure i'm going with 16.5x8 with 35.12.50 bfg AT/KO's

those look like they barely fit as it is, but it might just be those redneck-wide rims.

definatly get some 8 inchers. you should be able to clear 36x12's like aber

I'd just go 35x12.50's on 16x10's. I don't think that the x8's would look nearly as good as the x10's.

16.5's cuz i'm getting a deal from my buddy, he has 2 set's some 8's which are on his truck and some 10's that he doesn't use. the lift is 6 susp and 3 body. i might be goin with 37's cuz i found deal on some fiberglass.

fiberglass kicks ass. remember tho that 37s will be very rough on your suspension joints and steering

Hey SkyRider, I like the look of your truck on 35s

What are the specs of your truck? Is it a 2WD or 4WD?

Thanks

what he said :bowtie:
Thank you all

Skyrider:
My truck is exactly like yours with 6" Fabtech, the BL is waiting to be installed and then I'll run 35" SSR's. Heck, it's exactly the same color too, so I have a very good idea of how it'll look.

I haven't installed the BL yet because I wasn't sold on the frame exposure under the truck, but I've decided after I saw your truck. Do you have more pictures?

really sweet truck. as your truck is now, what kind of gas mileage does it get? what kind of tires are those? look like some swampers or MT's. what gears are you running?

SkyRider469,
What are you going to do with the wheels that are on your truck now? And are they 16.5x12s? If you wanna get rid of em cheap I might be interested. Hit me back.
Evan
